Important Rear Shock Torque Information

NC Rick:

An important note:

DO NOT use the Suzuki manual torque specification to tighten the lower shock mounting bolt (on the shock clevis).

The prescribed torque will often rip the aluminum threads out of the clevice on the OEM or our shock.

There is an error in the manual.

We suggest 43 NM as the correct torque to tighten the M-10 fastener in the aluminum thread.
